Relative Groundwork Limited accepts our responsibilities to afford future generations the choices and opportunities that we are currently enjoying, the Company tenders, plans, constructs and maintains construction projects in accordance with an integrated management system.
We have examined our environmental performance and identified the areas of our business activities, products and services which interact with the environment. We are committed to responsibly managing these aspects of our business to avoid, reduce or control pollution and will continually improve on environmental performances in these areas.
We have set objectives and targets within the framework of a programme for continual improvement. We monitor and measure our environmental performance through meaningful key performance indicators, regularly reviewing this progress against our stated objectives.
We will continue to promote sustainable construction objectives and apply techniques for the practical delivery of these principles in project specifications, development, and whole life operation.
We will influence others within our supply chain to apply sustainable construction principles and deliver improved environmental performance where they have control or influence.
We will ensure compliance with all applicable legislative and other requirements which relate to the Company’s environmental aspects throughout all stages of the project where Relative Groundwork Limited has control.
We will acknowledge, respond appropriately, and take into account of the views of the public and any other interested parties with respect to our operations and make this environmental policy available to them.
In addition, our policy will be communicated to all persons working for and on behalf of Relative Groundwork Limited, who also undertake specific training and accreditation at Induction and annually thereafter provided and certified by Citation PLC.
We believe that this policy will help us towards diverting waste from landfill and becoming carbon neutral by 2025. We are proud to report that in December 2019 RGW sent Zero waste to landfill and have continued this into 2020 over several months since, a statistic that is a landmark for a company of our size and stands as testament to our achievement and efforts in trying to protect the environment.
